Ruud Paesie

Zeeuwse kaarten voor de VOC; Het kaartenmakersbedrijf van de kamer Zeeland in de 17de en 18de eeuw  

Walburg Pers  Zutphen, 2010

In the 17th and 18th century the mapmakers of the Dutch East India Company were responsible for making nautical maps and providing them to their sailors. Much has been written about the famous Amsterdam mapmakers Blaeu and de Graaff, which gives the impression that these maps were exclusively manufactured in the Dutch capital. But this is not correct by far, as, for example; the so-called chamber of Zeeland also had its own mapmakers. Over an extended period of time maritime historian Ruud Paesie conducted detailed research into these mapmakers and published his results in this book.
